Nominal Christianity

"There is a great quantity of nominal Christianity today. There is need of more of the real kind. We need revival of the Christianity of Christ. We have, unconsciously, lazily, selfishly, formally grown into a discipleship that Jesus himself would not acknowledge. He would say to many of us when we cry, "Lord, Lord," "I never knew you!"
-- Charles M. Sheldon, In His Steps (1896)

When I first read this quote, I didn't know when this was written. It could have been written about today's society. We have a strong tendency to look more like the world than Jesus. Pray for the transformation of our lives, so that others will see Jesus instead of us.
